Does anyone find the iMon remote pad really innacurrate in MP? Just bought the Silverstone LC16-M in silver with the built in VFD and IR and the case is lush, but the remote is definately not WAF (or WAG?) compliant!

really no problems with the iMON pad... just be sure to replace the standard batteries immediately with better ones :lol:

Hi levellers. I am running the same case and remote. I find that if there is too much direct sunlight on the VFD then the remote becomes very unresponsive. In low ambient light with new batteries it is fine. I think it is just lacking somewhat in power. That said, it intergrates really well with MP.

I think the pad when used for arrows is a pain. Nothing beats four different buttons.

And the IR receiver is too directional (and proprietary and the imon-girder plugin not so great). And the VFD is too small.

Really? I find the pad really good (if a bit sensitive now and then). Is especially useful when using it in mouse mode. The native Media Portal plugin for the iMon VFD works well for me. I do agree that it is a bit directional.

Yes, in mouse mode I find it convienent but for up/down... it drives my girldfriend crazy. Especially when she's aiming at the opposite side of the mediacenter... ;)

My buttons and volume knob worked out of the box.. I loaded all the drivers that came with the silverstone case and once everything was plugged into the onboard USB it just worked. I'm not sure if you can customise the functions of the buttons (not actually tried).

Do the buttons and knob work in MP as well? ( Sorry I was not clear enough)

Do you know if it is possible to show the date next to the time on the vfd on the idel screen?

Yes, it has an own input manager. Have you tired in inbuild input manager? I need a clear step by step failure description inside MP2. Please also set your logs to debug and upload the logs with the failure description. Both is described in forum and Wiki.

VLC has a browser add-on that allows you to start a video selected in your browser in VLC, you then can use its record button. Doesn't always work though, my guess is it won't on protected vids but it is the only thing I have found other than the excellent download capability of Online Videos when available.

Well, your issue is really weird. Normally, battery should be OK but, who know ? And, if you have something like that : It could be interesting to see if your battery give 3 Volts. Also, if, after 3 days (for example) if you can start your PC manually and, go into the BIOS, motherboard BIOS time could be a good indicator.
